The Appification of Ecommerce
About a year ago I purchased a new MacBook Air. Seeing how my new laptop related to the world much like an iPad with apps and an app store was a revelation. Apps will rule the world. 

This trend is why we are all app builders now and these tutorials are a must view. The trend toward apps is more than you think. A few days ago I shared a Haiku Deck about the future of web design 3.0 ( 

 I missed the appification of everything. Apps, the widget-like shrinking of code to Lego blocks, form the core of mobile programming. Since mobile is taking over the smart move is to "appify" everything. 

This means thinking of websites as interconnected blocks responding to each other and our visitors in real time (as described in the deck). Best demonstration or analogy for this fluid app future is MIT's David Merrill explaining Siftable at TED .

The way Siftables related to one another (they are aware other Siftables are present and have a desire to connect if code expressed as a toy can have desires) and link in order to create a sum is greater than the whole universe is a great way to think about the New Ecommerce. 

The new ecom is location agnostic (capable of converting anywhere at anytime and with the merest snippet of Siftable-like code), socially self aware (capable of pulling friends and their influencers into the equation) and appified (small Lego-like blocks snapped together to meet specific needs). 

Sometimes we will snap in the predictive analytics block sometimes we might now. Other times we will want the social share block other times not. Design, in this Siftables-like future, becomes a series of WHAT IF conditions and testing, always testing. 

Going to be fun and why it is a GOOD idea to become an app builder.

Evernotify | Technology for school |

Evernote is used by many practitioners and stakeholders, to keep track of their thoughts, things they find on the web, and ideas as they come to them.


It can also make a great place to keep track of the tasks they need to accomplish.

Evernote is however lacking any sort of notification feature to actually remind users to do the task.

This can be addressed by using sends email notifications for tasks within Evernote.


Now Evernote users can have their ideas and their to-do list in one place.

- sign up and
- link it with your Evernote account.
- everything is broken down in two categories; to-dos and IOUs.


NOTE: When users add a new task through Evernote they must make sure they tag the note with “evernotify” or it will not notify them.


Once lists are set up, users can use the Evernotify web app to tweak how often and when they receive email notifications.


When users receive an email, it will tell them how many to-dos and how many IOUs they have left on their list.

For avid Evernote users, this a must-have app that will take it to another level.
